Let’s mosey to the small soccer field

Broke’s WOD:

I thought of some different words or phrases that also mean broke then used those to find exercises. 51 reps of each exercise was completed for his age and after each we did the Wojo to the other side of the field and back. The Wojo is a side shuffle like basketball practice(since Broke was a baller back in the day) after every 5 steps bend down and slap the ground.

Bankrupt=Burpees(his least favorite) There was a less than stellar performance by the PAX here. I guess when you say 51 burpees right off the bat it takes the wind right out of their sail. There was lot of standing and talking by several. Hate to see it!


As poor as a church mouse=American Hammer(his favorite)


Destitute=Deconstructed burpee


Impoverished=Iron Mike(jump lunge)


Poor=Pretzel crunch


Penniless=Peter Parker


Down and out=Dirty Hookup


Mosey back to the flag and finish with a minute and a half of burpees.

Some reasons Broke is my hero. Broke is a Godly man with strong faith. A good father whose dedication is represented by the good daughters he has raised. He is a dedicated and hard worker who is always willing to help someone out. He’s always respectful.

Most of the above was copied and pasted from July of 2020 when I created this WOD. I’ve got to add that since then Broke signed up for a half marathon just to support me in my effort. He trained long, terrible weathered, and route picked miles with me the whole way. Because of his support during training and his insistence on going out hot in the race I was able to far exceed my goal. Thanks #HAL
